Pic's of my TRAIN scenario! Sat, 03 July 2004 04:03
Well I have been working on this train idea for a while. I manufactured a train out of a birthday cake topper I got at a party store. I than found these awesome train track terrain, as well as the lakes and sand on a battlecry site. After making all the terrain I started to work on a scenario where the Germans are waiting on a train to resupply their campaign. They are heavily defending the train route and have a nearby Tiger squadron to back them up. Meanwhile the Yanks have another idea. An elite group of Airborne, 1 squad of engineers and a unit of Shermans in support are going to try and take the train. They will get an additional medal if they can capture it relatively intact, for their intelligence tells them that some enigma papers are on board! If this proves to be impossible they are to destroy it before it reaches the city.
The train will move forward one hex each turn. I am still working on further conditions and trying to assess its balance.

In the meantime I wanted to share the pic's wif ya!

Great mod! Can you tell me what battlecry site you got the train terrain from?

The Train track and Lake tiles you seek are posted on the BattleCry Yahoo Group. In the "Files" section New Terrain Tile by Bill Greenwald. That's me! I created them for use with some of the player scenarios that needed them. The old MS Photo Editor program is the best picture program to print them out at 100%.

Hey Bill,
Just wanted to thank you for your work on those tiles. They were perfect for my game.

Nice job. Sweet choo-choo. That's what's so cool about M'44. It's modular with the only limit being imagination. If DOW is blown away by response to the game, maybe they'll come up with even more stuff to support it. Just imagine... Cool

Anyone else come up with any updated train scenarios? I would like to hear some other ideas on this. I am about to move on to the sniper play test. I found an awesome little mini I had lying around that is just perfect, lying on his belly with a rifle. I may give him a little gilly(sp) suit and repaint and use him in the sniper scenario posted.

Go watch "Von Ryan's Express" and then design your own train scenario.
